Keep your head up. Life tests us in weird ways. Your poetry is amazing & I can certainly say I have a few favorites.
I needed to hear that. Thank you so much.
Drink this, smoke this, get down with the shit.
the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun
For a long time now I’ve been feeling uninspired and useless and entirely underwhelmed by my capabilities. It really hit me last night that I’ve lost my drive and any passion I ever had. And then this evening, a kid who is a senior at my high school messaged me on Facebook telling me how much one of my poems inspired him to make an art film celebrating women who are heroes for themselves. Brought me right back to reality. Never thought a boy who irritated the hell out of me his freshman year would end up lighting a fire just by reminding me that I have a voice.
